From Dock to Dinner Table
Bell Buoy was started in 1946 by the local Sigurdson family as a way to sell their crab catches. Up until 1992, Bell Buoy was a wholesale company that sold a small amount of fresh seafood via retail. In 2002, the Hartill brothers, Jon and Terry, purchased the business and turned it into a local retail destination with a restaurant and booming seafood market.
Bell Buoy is a family run business, passed down from father to son and owned by Trent Hartill.
From dock to dinner table, you know where your dinner came from!
